Online Letter 105
7 June 2019
Dear Online Friend(s),
Greetings in the Name of Christ the First Comforter who prayed to the Father and got for us the Holy Spirit the Second Comforter! (Jn 14:16).
(1) We had a blessed time with over 500 believers in Hyderabad on 31 May 2019 when we released my 352-page book, Bible Power, in TELUGU. Each family was given a free copy. I preached a 100-minute sermon, titled, “Back to the Holy Spirit!” with simultaneous Telugu translation. In due course this Talk will be made available to you in video and audio format. There was a fellowship meal at the close. Attached herewith is the book for your free downloading. Do forward it to your Telugu Christian friends everywhere. Help them experience the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives. The hardcopy which is a bound volume is priced at Rs. 150/-; forwarding Rs. 50/-. The English and Tamil editions were attached for free downloading to my Online Letter 90, 4 May 2018.
(2) In the above gathering, which was both inter-denominational and inter-organisational, I asked whether anyone knew when the Day of Pentecost falls in the Christian Calendar of 2019. Hardly anyone knew it. Both mainline and free Churches, Pentecostal or non-Pentecostal, celebrate Christmas with great fervour, even from the month of November! Christmas marks the coming of Jesus Christ the Second Person of Trinity. Pentecost marks the coming of the Holy Spirit the Third Person of Trinity. Don’t we believe in the equality of the three Persons in the Godhead? Why this partiality then between the two Parallel Gifts of God the Father? The deficient knowledge of the Holy Spirit is the primary reason for the spiritual ills in the life of a Christian and the Church.
Attached herewith is my 30-minute Talk, in video and audio format, in English and in Tamil, titled, “Hello, Holy Spirit on line!” This is a presentation of the Helps of the Holy Spirit as if He Himself is speaking! I assure you that you will be genuinely revived and thoroughly refreshed in your Christian walk as you watch or listen to this message, because it is totally Bible-based. This is the testimony of those who watched the VCD or listened to the ACD during the past years.
Play this video or audio in your prayer fellowship or Bible study group, specially on 9 June, the Pentecost Sunday. Have a time of prayer following it. May the Lord fill each of you with the Holy Spirit so your cup may overflow! God honours His Word whenever it’s faithfully presented (Acts 10:44).
